Visual Studio 2010 Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Visual Studio 2010 Data-Centric WPF Applications

clock July 25, 2011 07:23 by author Jervis

Data Sources from Visual Studio 2010 allows for easily creating user interfaces for WPF applications to read/write data. Previously, with Visual Studio 2008 this was only available for Windows Forms applications, and used the DataSet behind the scenes. Now WPF is supported as well, and an Entity Framework can be used.

After creating a WPF application, a data source can be created. The data source that can be selected from the Data Source Configuration Wizard allows accessing  Database, a Service, an Object, and SharePoint.



After selecting the data source either the old DataSet can be used for accessing data, or a Entity Data Model can be created.



The Data Sources window now allows if data should be displayed within a DataGrid, as list or detail information. Then it’s possible to define the UI elements for each property of the DataSource, e.g. Label, TextBox, ComboBox, TextBlock… For a DateTime data type per default the DatePicker is selected. It’s also possible to add custom controls.



By drag&drop from the Data Sources window to the WPF designer the UI elements are added to the XAML code. The UI elements that are added are data-bound to CollectionViewSource elements. CollectionViewSource is a proxy to CollectionView that itself allows grouping, sorting, filtering, and navigation.

    <Window.Resources>
        <CollectionViewSource x:Key="racersViewSource"
            d:DesignSource="{d:DesignInstance my:Racer, CreateList=True}" />
        <CollectionViewSource x:Key="racersRaceResultsViewSource"
            Source="{Binding Path=RaceResults, Source={StaticResource racersViewSource}}" />
    </Window.Resources>

In the code-behind generated code a query is created across the object context to retrieve data from the database.

        private ObjectQuery<Racer> GetRacersQuery(Formula1Entities formula1Entities)
        {
            // Auto generated code

            ObjectQuery<Racer> racersQuery = formula1Entities.Racers;
            // Update the query to include RaceResults data in Racers. You can modify this code as needed.
            racersQuery = racersQuery.Include("RaceResults");
            // Returns an ObjectQuery.
            return racersQuery;
        }

This query is used when loading the Window to assign the Source property of the CollectionViewSource.

        private void Window_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {

            Formula1Entities formula1Entities = new Formula1Entities();
            // Load data into Racers. You can modify this code as needed.
            CollectionViewSource racersViewSource = ((CollectionViewSource)(this.FindResource("racersViewSource")));
            ObjectQuery<Racer> racersQuery = this.GetRacersQuery(formula1Entities);
            racersViewSource.Source = racersQuery.Execute(MergeOption.AppendOnly);
        }


The generated code might not be the one exactly needed. For very simple scenarios it just might be enough and just needs small tweaks and additions to write data to the database.

In most scenarios the code needs bigger changes and additions. This technology still might be a good use for a start to create UI elements based on some data and change it afterwards. The generated XAML code for the UI can also be copied to different projects.

Visual Studio LightSwitch Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Using Visual Studio LightSwitch To Create An Application In Under Four Minutes

clock July 5, 2011 05:57 by author Jervis

Visual Studio LightSwitch is a mind-blowing new offering from Microsoft, which is currently available as a public beta. The idea behind LightSwitch is to create data-backed applications without having to write any code. This sounded too good to be true, so I dedicated some time to trying it out. Three minutes and twenty seconds to be precise! Now, you can find these technology on our Shared hosting plan with very reliable and reasonable price.

Here is a screen shot of the application I created - it's a simple email / phone directory for internal use within a company. I figured you'd want to store each person's name, department, email and some phone numbers.



Remember, the entire application took 3:20 to write from scratch - just look at this search screen. I've got my data persisted to a SQL Express database for free. I've got paged results for free, I've got a search box that searches multiple fields for free. I've got the option to export to excel for free. Also note that I've added a "Create New Contact" page and also a "Details" page (you click on the first name) to edit existing records. I did those inside of that 3:20 as well.

What other features do you get for free... well, there is form validation to make sure people enter all the required information when adding a new record and there is even dirty-data checking for free.

So how did I write this application. Here are the details...

Step 1 - What do you want to store

This is the first screen you get. You type in the fields that you want to use in your application. The "Type" is a drop down list that contains handy options like "PhoneNumber" and "EmailAddress" as well as the more traditional number types and strings.



Step 2 - Add a screen

From the view of the data model, you just hit the "Add Screen" button and select from the five available templates. The search data screen is the one I selected for the main view in my application. Then you give it a "Screen Name" and select the "Screen Data" and click on OK.



At this point, you are actually finished - although I repeated this step to add a "Create Contact" screen and a "Details" screen (which also lets you edit the record).

Run up the example and what you have is a fully functional application, persisting its data to a database and validating user input. It's a Silverlight application, so you can run it on the desktop or via a browser.

More Information

You can find out more about LightSwitch on
the official Microsoft LightSwitch site.

Screen Shots

Here are a couple more screen shots that show some of the stuff you get for free when using LightSwitch, like validation messages and dirty-data warnings. Even the theme of the application is free, with it's tabbed interface and simple ribbon bar menu.

Visual Studio LightSwitch Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: SQL Server Meets Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch

clock June 6, 2011 06:36 by author Jervis

Introduction

Developing a tool for building applications with little to no programming skills has been the goal of multiple companies over the last twenty some odd years. You would think that after all this time someone would have come up with a way to automatically generate computer programs to do just about anything. While there are some products on the market that come close, there really isn't a tool that completely writes a program for you.


Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch takes another shot at the no-programming-experience-needed goal with the target of building applications to run both natively and over the web. It's the culmination of several years' worth of research and development effort on the part of Microsoft aimed specifically at the relatively simple line-of-business application market. The target user of the product is someone with little-to-no programming experience but a good understanding of the business process needing to be automated.

Database Centric

LightSwitch at the core is all about building data-centric applications. When you first fire up the program and create a new project you'll be asked to either create a new data table or connect to an external data source. All the plumbing necessary to make the database connections is done for you behind the scenes. To connect to password protected data sources will require a one-time username and password and, after that, it will be automatic.

One of the new things that LightSwitch brings to the table is the idea of real-world data types like phone numbers and email addresses. In a typical business language like Visual Basic this would typically require some additional logic to take a string input field, validate that the input data looked something like a phone number (no letters, right number of digits, etc) and then save the result to a string field. Fields can also have default values or partial values such as a default domain for an e-mail address. When you create a table from scratch, LightSwitch actually fires up a copy of Microsoft SQL Express with a file-attached data source.



To talk to external SQL databases LightSwitch uses EDM. This provides direct access to all the popular SQL database engines including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and more. LightSwitch also uses the recently released Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Rich Internet Application (RIA) services to communicate between the application and any external data source, including Cloud SQL Azure.

Out-of-the-box (OOTB) support for SharePoint as an external data source makes LightSwitch a great candidate for apps to manipulate any SharePoint table. The development environment provides a simple relationship builder tool to establish links between different tables. You don't have to be a programmer or a database expert to use the tool.

Simplified User Interface Construction

In doing the research for this product, Microsoft identified a number of common elements that tend to repeat themselves with typical business applications. For user interaction this typically involves a set number of screens for inputting, searching, editing and displaying data of some type. LightSwitch provides all of these patterns as options when you select Add New Screen.



LightSwitch uses a XAML-based syntax for both the screen layout and data schema definitions. It is not, however, the same XAML you would get when building a Silverlight application using the full Visual Studio experience. LightSwitch goes to great lengths to take care of the more mundane code needed to do most of the common tasks that every application must do. For example, every grid in a LightSwitch native app comes with the ability to directly export to Excel without the need to write any code.

Customizing user screens happens while the application is actually running. When you run an application, you'll see an icon in the upper right corner titled "Customize Screen." Clicking this icon brings up a Customization Mode window with a multitude of options, allowing you to change the layout of your screen. The tool uses a template system with a set of default templates for displaying typical data layouts and includes the ability to extend the templates should the need arise.



When you're ready to publish your app, simply follow the instructions provided from the publish option on the Build menu. That's pretty much all there is to it.

Final Notes

If you are a current MSDN subscriber, you'll be happy to know that when LightSwitch ships it will be integrated into the Visual Studio Pro and Ultimate product lines so you'll have the option when creating a new project to build a LightSwitch solution. The product will also be available as a stand-alone offering for anyone that's not a current Visual Studio or MSDN customer. Thanks for reading.

Visual Studio LightSwitch Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: The Powerfull of LightSwitch Application

clock May 31, 2011 05:37 by author Jervis

Visual Studio LightSwitch is built on two basic concepts; data and screens which are used to create typical business applications.

Obviously, there is more to it than that but generally when developing a business application, you start with a piece of data. This can take the form of local data or a connection to an external data source of some description. You describe this data in your application and then build your application in order to manipulate the data as required. The second step involves providing a mechanism to interact with that data. This is generally accomplished by designing screens which allow users to perform standard CRUD (create/read/update/delete) operations on the data. Ultimately, a combination of screens makes a business application.



Business application developers should immediately see the  benefits of LightSwitch once they start to get their hands dirty with it. However, in general, Business Intelligence (BI) projects are not really about building business applications, rather they provide the means to analyse the data being produced by such business applications. However, many BI projects face the same challenge, namely how to manage master data or some other data. Commonly, BI solutions require that a number of tables in the database require content which needs to be managed by the users. More often than not, database tools are used to manage these tables but this is not an ideal solution as generally users expect a more user-friendly way to do this and database tools such as Management Studio are far too powerful for managing this sort of data.

So how have we solved this problem in the past? I cannot speak for all BI solution providers, but at Altius we’ve been solving this problem by writing custom applications to let users to manage data. Such custom applications have been written in such languages as VB 6, ASP.NET, C# and WPF. More importantly, most have been created from scratch which has created additional overhead to the project.



By using LightSwitch, instead of writing all those applications, can we very quickly create an application for the users to manage their master data such as user permissions or dimension data. The beauty of LightSwitch is that you can leverage the data regardless of where it is. Your data can come from SQL Server (local and remote), SharePoint, Azure, or even .NET WCF Services.

LightSwitch also provides some really powerful integration functionality with common business tools. For example, you can export any list to Excel with no coding whatsoever or with some minor custom code create reports in Word or PowerPoint.

Another powerful feature is that while creating your LightSwitch application you don’t need to think about it how you are ultimately going to deploy it. LightSwitch applications can be deployed as web-based applications or desktop applications.

One word of warning however. LightSwitch relies on the use of SilverLight. This allows the decision around deployment to be made late during development. This could obviously cause issues if the organisation you are working in does not have SilverLight installed on the client machines. Generally, such applications for managing BI data would only be available to a small set of users so some concessions could be made for these users.

There are many powerfull features of LightSwitch application. We have launched our new LightSwitch hosting. Please visit our site for more information about our new product.

download the LightSwitch beta from http://www.microsoft.com/lightswitch. Running the download will install the various components of light switch onto your system.



Once installed, you can run LightSwitch like any other program. Upon startup, you'll be presented with a pretty simple screen that allows you to start a new project or open an existing one.



You can also choose to download extensions or review some additional information on LightSwitch. Clicking the option to create New Project will present the New Project dialog.



On this page you can elect to use Visual Basic or C# programming. You can also give your project a name as well as set the location where you'd like its files to be stored. Once you've set the values you want, click the OK button to continue creating your new application. This will present you with a new dialog allowing you to create a new table (database) or to attach to an existing database.



If you select to create a new table, then you'll be presented with a designer for creating your data sources. Within the dialog shown, you can click on the Add Property area and add the name of an item to be stored in your database. You can then set the type as well. There are a types ranging from Strings (text) to PhoneNumbers. LightSwitch will add some editing features based on the type, so you should pick the type that fits best. There are a few non-standard types such as email address and money to choose from as well.



You can also create relationships, computed properties, queries, additional tables, and more. Of course, with data, there is likely also a need to create a screen to interact with that data. You can create the Screen option in the designer to be taken to a dialog for adding a new screen



As you can see in the Add New Screen dialog, you have a variety of standard layouts to select from including one for adding new data, one for searching existing data, one for showing details of your data, one for editing the data in a grid, and one for listing the data alongside the details. As you click on each screen template, the display shows a rough layout. Once you've selected your layout style, you can pick a name for the screen file and select the data you want to use (most likely the table you just created or linked to). Clicking Ok will then create the screen.



The resulting screen might surprise a non-developer as it doesn't look like a screen; however, if you look at what is presented, you'll see that a screen was created with a couple of text boxes and a phone number. You can see the actual screen by running the application or by right clicking on the screen name in the Solution Explorer on the right side and selecting Open. To run the application, press F5 or select Start Debugging from the Debug Menu. If you run the application, then if it builds correctly you'll see something like the following:



At this point you can enter data into the dialog in the application shown. You'll see that it does format your phone number. Additionally, you can click the drop down arrow on the phone number field and see that it knows the parts of a phone number as well. Once you've entered data, you can click the Save button to save the information. If you want to add additional people, you can click on the CreateNew item on the menu to the left.

Visual Studio LightSwitch Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Creating Relationship Tables in Visual Studio LightSwitch

clock May 18, 2011 06:18 by author Jervis

Microsoft’s new development tool, “Visual Studio LightSwitch“, which was launched few months back. Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch is much like other Visual studio softwares but having the simple and fast creation of tables , their relations and using the screens(for interfaces) , which means you don’t have to code for you tables, for connecting databases and for making interfaces. Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch makes it all for you in some simple clicks. Now make your Business Applications yourself.

Here we go:

1. click on the button “New Table” No#1.



- Another tables “No#2” appears  , name that table e.g. “Vehicle”.
- add some attributes. Name, type ,Model etc
- define their data types. String , Decimal ,Binary etc.
- decide requirement.
- Now click button  No#3 “Relationship”.



- From No#1 of this figure. select the table name, its multiplicity &  behavior.
- the ER diagram has been made by itself, that shows (One to Many) relation. e.g. A person can have many cars.
- at No#2 the sentence shows the logical behavior of the relationships based upon the properties chosen  at “No#1” .
- Click the OK button.



- A relationship has been made between two tables named “Person”and ” Vehicle”, which is one to many relationship.

The above mentioned steps were the basic steps towards making the relationship between tables in Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch. We will show you another great tutorial about LightSwitch.

Visual Studio LightSwitch Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: How to Simplify App Development Using Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch

clock May 2, 2011 05:25 by author Jervis

Microsoft's Visual Studio Live! is a developer's conference that is all about development in the Visual Studio environment. Visual Studio Live! Orlando was held at the Hilton Walt Disney World Resort in November 2010. One of the big announcements from this conference was the launch date for Visual Studio LightSwitch. And what now you can get this visual studio lightswitch hosting at ASPHostPortal.com. This article contains brief information about the benefit and the useful of Visual Studio LightSwitch.

Visual Studio LightSwitch is a rapid development environment that gives technical and somewhat technical people the ability to create lightweight, line-of-business applications. While many developers don't think Visual Studio LightSwitch will be useful for creating applications, I think it can be very beneficial to use in the right circumstances. Here are some reasons why.

Right-sized versus enterprise-ready

In recent years there has been a growing philosophy that everything needs to be enterprise-ready. The prevailing thought is that all solutions need to be scalable, flexible, "anything-able." While that is true for anything that really does need to be enterprise-ready, there are situations where enterprise-ready is too much.

Imagine you are a small startup. You are not focused on enterprise-ready. You are focused on getting through your first year. Alternately, you might be an established organization that is considering getting into a new line of business. Focusing on getting something up and running to let your employees share information in a cost-effective way would ensure that you are not risking valuable resources (that is, capital). In today's economy, capital budgets are limited (and nonexistent in some companies).

The best of both worlds

Traditionally, we have seen tools such as Access, Excel and, more recently, SharePoint, act as a useful starting point for a low-cost prototype. The best thing that can be said of those initial forays in developing line-of-business applications is that usually all of the necessary data points have been identified and there is a working prototype. I find that having a working prototype is immeasurably helpful when starting an enterprise application development effort.

While Access and Excel solutions do provide value when moving to the next level of maturation, Visual Studio LightSwitch can provide even more. Since Visual Studio LightSwitch can connect to Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle databases, the application can utilize either of those databases during the initial development.

Visual Studio LightSwitch also generates an ADO.Net Entity Framework (EF) class structure that can be used in the next iteration of development. Finally, the interface is rendered to a Microsoft Silverlight application.

Recently, I had a customer request a simple application for generating quotes for customers and tracking them in a Web format. Taking this use case, it was decided to give LightSwitch a go. We were able to build a working prototype for the need within four hours—complete with the database tables, class structure and Microsoft Silverlight interface. Normally, in a traditional Web development environment, this would have taken close to 40 hours to get to the same point.

Efficiency versus maturation

Some people point out that if this right-sized application is successful, that it will need to be rebuilt, usually from the ground up. While this is mostly true, it's relevant to restate that having a working prototype does reduce the risk (risk=time+money) in starting a new application.

So, would it be more efficient to build the enterprise-ready version of the application first? The assumption there is that you are going to get the application right the first time or that the application will be used for a period of time to recover its return on investment. But aren't those two very big assumptions? Furthermore, aren't those two very expensive assumptions?

Also, it's relevant to say that enterprise software endeavors are never guaranteed successes. We all know the high rate of failure for traditional development, whether it is done using an agile or waterfall approach. Approximately 50 percent of all features are either never used or rarely used. Why not develop those features inexpensively first and then decide what needs to be in your final application? These are the types of benefits Microsoft's Visual Studio LightSwitch can provide, making it something to consider moving forward.

Visual Studio LightSwitch Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: LightSwitch Tutorial – Creating a Basic Application

clock April 14, 2011 06:48 by author Jervis

This tutorial will demonstrate the creation of a simple LightSwitch application which will be a simple customers application with a single table of customers.

Create a New LightSwitch Project

1. Start up Visual Studio LightSwitch from 
Start > All Programs > Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 > Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

2. Select File > New Project and the New Project dialog box will appear.


3. From the Installed Templates listing, select the LightSwitch. (Note that if you are using the full version of Visual Studio Professional with LightSwitch installed you will be shown more templates than just the LightSwitch templates).

4. Select the LightSwitch Application (Visual Basic) template which we will use for this demo and enter a name for the project (in this case I have used lightswitchdemo)





5. Once the application has been created you will be shown an option to either Create a New Table (if the app is being created with an all new database) or Attach to External Database if you need to use LightSwitch as a front-end to an existing database. For this tutorial we will select Create a New Table:



Before we proceed, note the structure of the LightSwitch project from the Solution Explorer in Visual Studio. There are three elements :


-
Properties – which is main configuration settings for LightSwitch, such as whether the app will be deployed as as a browser app or a stand-alone desktop app.

-
Data Sources – the data tables being used to data storage by the LightSwitch app.

-
Screens – the front-end ‘screens’ or pages which the end user will use to interact with the application.

Creating a Data Table in LightSwitch

In this section of the tutorial we will create a table for storing the company’s customer data

1.
Click Create new Table from the screen shown above (alternatively you can right-click on Data Sources in the Solution Explorer and select Add Table).

2.
Enter the details for each field in the table entry form. In this demo of a customers data tables I have used the fields FirstName, LastName, Email and PhoneNumber. Set the data type for each field, the default type is String, but note the types of EmailAddress and PhoneNumber which have inbuilt validation (as we will see in later tutorials) and should be used whenever possible for these fields. Save the fields by click Control+S or the save icon in the Visual Studio toolbar. For this tutorial I have set all fields to Required, but note that you will often want to uncheck this requirement for some fields to make their input option.



3. Change the table name to Customers by right-clicking on the table (currently named TableItem1) under Data Sources > ApplicationData , and then selecting Rename

Display Customer Data in an Editable Grid

In this final part of the tutorial we will create a simple one screen grid which the user will be able to view, edit and add customers to the LightSwitch application.

1. Right-click on Screens in the Visual Studio Solution Explorer and then select Add Screen…  You will then be shown the below screen which lists out the current screen templates available for creating user interfaces in LightSwitch



2. Select Editable Grid Screen from the Listing, enter EditableCustomerGrid as the Screen Name  (note that you cannot use spaces for the Screen Name) and select Customers for the Screen Data as shown below and then click OK and the screen should be immediately visible user the Screens folder in the Solution Explorer. Note that for a real-world app we would probably be creating several screens for the app such as a dedicated New Data Screen for inputing data, a Search Screen for performing searches and a Details Screen to display the data.



3. The Properties window should be automatically open, but if not just double-click the EditableCustomerGrid icon in the Solution Explorer. The full listing of screen properties as shown below:



4. Change the Display Name from EditableCustomerGrid to Customers (this is the name of the screen that will be shown to the end-user). Then Save the changes

That’s all that is required to create a very simple LightSwitch app.

Testing and Running the LightSwitch Application From Visual Studio


1. Once the application has been created and saved  hit F5 to run it. The application’s main window (see below)is partitioned into three main areas:
Ribbon: This area at the top of the screen gives quick access to common tasks which are performed in the LightSwitch application. The default tasks in the Ribbon are saving the current changes and refreshing the data source.

- Navigation Pane: On the left of the screen the Navigate Pane lists  the apps screens.
- Main Pane: The main active working screen. To change screens click another screen from the Navigation View.



2. Using the grid you can enter customer data. Note that on data types such as Email and Phone Number, the validation is built in.



3. Once you have entered the data, click Save on the Ribbon and the data will be saved to the database.



Publish and Deploy a LightSwitch Application From Visual Studio

The deployment process for a LightSwitch application differs depending on the application type which has been selected for the application. The application can be set from by double-clicking Properties in the Solution Explorer and selecting the Application Type tab.  There are three  application types – Desktop 2 Tier which creates as a simple WPF desktop app, Desktop 3 Tier which creates a WCF app and uses IIS to connect to the data source and Browser Client 3 Tier which creates a browser based Silverlight app:



In this simple demo we are will leave the default, Desktop client 2 tier deployment.

To start the publication process, right-click the main application icon (in this case lightswitchdemo) and select Publish… , the Publish Application Wizard will then be launched:



The first step is to specific the location on the machine to place the application files on the Specify Publishing Preference page. On this page you also need to specify how to create the database, you can either be published directly to an existing database or create a script which can then be executed to create the database manually.



Next, in the Database Configuration specify the connection string for the database (note that the options would be different if you elected to create a database script).



Next, in the Prerequisites you can specify which additional components  to install for running the application



Finally, you are will be able to specify any additional settings such as connections to reporting servers.



That’s it! This is a very simple application without many of the features required for actual business apps. In later tutorials we will dive deeper into features of LightSwitch.
